Many more happy returns of the day lotus !!
பிருந்தாவனத்தில் சுற்றி திரியும் புள்ளி மானே
உன் மாய தோற்றத்தை கலைத்து விடு
சீதா தேவி போல் பார்த்துக் கொள்வேன் நான்
கலைவாணி பெற்ற வெள்ளைத் தாமரையே
உன் இதய தாமரையில் குடிஅமர இடம் தருவாயா
சரஸ்வதி தேவியிடம் அழைத்துச் செல்வேன் நான்

அப்பு அன்னை சரஸ்வதி மடியில் அமர்ந்து அன்னம் பருக
தேவர்கள் பூ மழை பொழிந்து வாழ்த்தினர் ...
Morning, I went to temple and adorn lord saraswati devi with Jasmine garland and white Lotus flowers ... She looks pretty... When i entered the temple abishegam (water) was not done... I was waiting for the ayar ... On normal days she don't wear white saree... luckily today she is in white saree with green border... She know that today is special day ;) I am really happy on seeing Saraswati Maatha in white saree
Also bought pink lotus for lakshmi devi... when the ayyar comes, he did abishegam with water and adorned her with the garlands that i bought ... He put sandhanam on her forehead and it looks like full moon... I gave the lotus, myself and my mother name for archanai.. Then the ayyar gave the prasadham 'kumkum'.. When he tries to take the lotus flower from lord saraswati, i told him to just keep it there... its for her ...
I prayed to her that i don't know whether lotus is false deer or truely she has love on me .. Anything it's upto you and lotus.. I do what you decide whether i am Raman for lotus (sita devi) or yashoda for Krishna ... I prefer first choice since i can be always with her... On the second one, I can't even see / talk to her... It's an illusion only .... I can't even say her as false deer.. She is true ... She is dove .. she is pure like tulsi and saraswati devi....
When i came out of the temple, I thought of giving 'kumkum' to lotus.. But i can't give this Prasadham to lotus ... I asked for paper to keep the kumkum but the flower shop keeper gave me the white lotus idhal ;) to keep this kumkum ... Before this Ayyar gave me the lotus flower as prasadham which i didn't buy .. Now i got the white lotus ... What a kindness lord saraswati has ?? My mother lord parvati is noticing all my activities with cute smile on her lips ;-)
